  1. SkyDogCon 2014 Badge project

    It's that time of year again. That time of year when we get too little notice and budget to build a badge for a conference.

    I'll try to sneak some pictures in as the prototypes are built ;-)

  2. On-Going Hope

    by , 08-25-2014 at 04:11 PM (Propeller-Powered GeoRover Inspection Robot)
    08/25/2014: I have not been able to obtain the Wild Thumper so far, but really hope to get it soon! What a disapointment. However, I am working little by little on developing pseudocode for the GeoRover. I am adapting code from the OBEX, primarily in Spin format, coupled with code borrowed from the Arduino website, with hopes of eventually porting the code over to Propeller C. I plan to use Spin2cpp (version 1.05 to http://code.google.com/p/spin2cpp/) provided by ersmith to convert my hacked-together ...

  3. Sparkfun geiger counter modified with propeller chip dual 8 segment display.

    Its the sparkfun model SEN-09848, the one that didn't have voltage regulation, and the atmeg code didn't work above 50cpm.

    I modified a sparkfun geiger counter so it has a readout display from a propeller chip.
    The prop chip gets its count from the output led, not the atmeg chip.

    The prop will blink the very right decimal point when it counts a pulse.
    The green led on top is connected directly to the pulse output from the geiger counter.

    The prop ...

  4. KNEX Motor Sensor for Basic Stamp Homework Board Microcontroller

    I am running a microcontroller to turn a KNEX AC motor (12 V, 500 mA) On and OFF via two sets of IR sensors from Radioshack.

    This powers a KNEX roller coaster train. With multiple cars, this stops the motor after exiting lift hill until another point on the track before train passing another sensor IR beam zone and initiating POWER ON for the motor. This creates "Buffer Zone" for no collision of multiple trains on one track.

    The code is PBASIC.

    The ...
